We’re house and dog sitting at the moment and Josh decided to make some lunch. It was a challenge, as he was in a kitchen where he didn’t know where everything was and had to make do with the ingredients at hand. Can’t believe he came up with this incredible cheezy vegan pasta! I’ve wanted to attempt a cheezy pasta for a while, and he totally nailed it! So, we’ve decided to call it Josh’s Easy Cheezy Vegan Pasta.
I was so impressed with this dish, that I’ve decided Josh can be head chef from now on, and I’ll take a back seat, lol!
What’s more, the recipe is so simple! Made with just SIX ingredients (not including water), it takes no time at all to make!
We love pasta – who else loves pasta? It’s just such a comforting, nourishing dish, and this one in particular will have you feeling all warm and cosy in no time. Another great winter dish to add to your recipe collection!
If you made too much and save it in a container for the next day, just add a little more rice milk before you heat it up again to make it all creamy, otherwise it tends to glug together.
We topped ours with toasted pine nuts because they taste so good, and just a few sprigs of fresh coriander.
If you want to spice it up a bit, then add some chilli flakes or cayenne pepper. Though it already has a little kick to it because of the white pepper. You could even add some fresh herbs when you add the red onion to give it a little more flavour. Try coriander, thyme, basil or even tarragon would work!
If you want to be decadent, make our Super Simple Vegan Garlic Bread to go with this pasta!
